About me and my therapy practice
I am an empathic and experienced Psychosynthesis Therapeutic Counsellor, with 20 years experience of working with individuals, couples and relationship issues within families, where there have been emotional distress, trauma and loss. This includes working in various settings such as Primary Care, Private Practice, Substance Mis-use and Addiction Treatment Services. My main fields of work and interest are in helping others to discover their true selves and move beyond their difficulties. I facilitate improved relationship with self and others, increased self-knowledge, self-esteem and coping strategies, along with better communication and reconnecting with purpose, meaning and value in life after difficult times, whenever that has been.
I like to include creative methods of self expression, such as art making and writing, in our work together. This can include connecting with the outside and animals, as well as talking, as a means to self discovery. I am experienced in helping those to recover from all addictions, including behavioural ones, such as, dis-ordered eating and gambling, and obsessive compulsive disorders.
I work gently and kindly with those who are recovering from complex issues of grief and loss, trauma and childhood abuse and low self worth. I will adjust the pace of work to suit you, always being guided by you, and sensitive to your individual process and journey. Together it is my experience that you can move towards re-connecting with the person you were always meant to be and to reconnect with who you really are.
Equine Facilitated Therapy, (where horses help people with their well-being and mental health - no riding is involved), locally to Hertford, can be part of the therapy offered. I also offer outdoor psychotherapy, which takes place outdoors, facilitating our connection with nature as a means to reconnect with self, others and our place in the world.
